Watch scene in game

It's the day before the race.
The race pilots are all in the paddock making their final preparations as the heats are about to begin.
Lyria: Yikes! I can already feel the tension!
Vyrn: Are you okay? Check out (Captain). No hint of the jitters!
Gran is the Main Character

(Captain) looks rather pleased in his white racer outfit.
Djeeta is the Main Character

(Captain), appearing somewhat bashful in her light pink racer outfit, turns to Lyria and Vyrn with a smile.
Lyria: You're always so calm and collected, (Captain). That suit looks really good on you too!
Vyrn: This is our first time in this sorta getup! I'm so pumped up right now!
Lyria: Now that you mention it... this suit really does help you get in the moment!
Lyria: Agh!
???: Oops, my bad.
Lyria: Gosh! I'm so sorry!
???: You might not wanna jump out from behind your ride in the future. No one's gonna see a little thing like you.
Lyria: Wow, what a giant! Do you think he's a race pilot?
Vyrn: I guess he probably is. It's funny, actually...
Vyrn looks around at all the other pilots' speedships assembled on the track.
Vyrn: It isn't just the pilots that come in all shapes and sizes. Check out all the different kinds of speedships here.
Lyria: Oh, look! There's Zeta and Beatrix over there.
Beatrix: La-la-lah, hm-hm-hmm...
Zeta: Hey, Bea, chuck me that wrench, would you?
Beatrix: This thing?
Zeta: Yeah, thanks.
Vyrn: Oh yeah. Looks like everyone's busy with last-minute tuning, huh? I wonder how many people there are altogether?
???: Hey, Sturm, did you mess with my setup—
???: Shut up! I've had enough of your moaning!
Lyria: Wha—
Lyria: Sturm and Drang!
Drang: Hm? Hey, it's you guys!
Sturm: (Captain)! Are you and your crew in the race?
Vyrn: You bet we are! And by the look of it, so are you, huh?
Drang: Of course! You do know there's seven hundred million up for grabs, right? You can't pass up a chance to get that kind of money.
Lyria: Haha, no, I guess not.
Vyrn: Heh, that's just the kind of thing I'd expect from you guys!
Sturm: So we're not taking any prisoners out there, got it?
Drang: Heh heh heh. You heard her! Good luck!
Lyria: Wow, that was a surprise!
Vyrn: Yeah, first we bump into Zeta and Beatrix, and now those two as well!
Lyria: Well, I suppose the huge amount of prize money attracts a lot of people.
Vyrn: You can say that again! Oh and hey, look over there. Isn't that the reigning champ we met before?
Meteon: ...
Lyria: Right, that's him. Maybe we should go over and say hi?
Vyrn: Hang on.
Meteon: ...
Meteon has his hands pressed against his ship and his eyes closed, apparently deep in concentration.
Meteon: Sigh...
Vyrn: He looks like he's trying to get into the zone. Let's leave him to it.
Lyria: Yeah, you're probably right.
Vyrn: I can almost feel the guy's concentration in the air...
Lyria: I feel it too. He is a champion after all.
Picking up on Meteon's determination, (Captain) and company feel a renewed desire to rise to the challenge.
Commentator: Ladies and gentlemen, the wait is nearly over! The heats for this year's PSC are about to begin!
Spectator 1: Come on!
Spectator 2: Wahoo! Go, Meteon!
Commentator: The atmosphere in the stadium here is electric! I can feel tingles down my spine!
Commentator: Now, joining us again this year for commentary is our well-loved friend...
Commentator: Knickknack Shack owner, skyracing aficionado, and speedship expeeert... Sierokarte!
Sierokarte: Hi, everyone!
Commentator: So let's dive straight in and take a look at this year's most prominent entries.
Commentator: First up...
Commentator: It's Sturm and Drang's Mad Clown II!
Commentator: Now, this pair's new to the PSC, but they're no strangers to skyracing. No, these crazy clowns are ones to watch!
Commentator: Next up after a four year absence, iiit's Maddie!
Commentator: And he's here with his new ship, the Kaiser Herrschaft!
Commentator: I, I have to say even I can't explain this one! Just what's pilot and what's ship here?
Lyria: Ah! That's the person who bumped into me!
Vyrn: Just look at him! How is that even possible?
Onlookers are shocked by the twisted appearance of Maddie and his ship, almost as if they're fused together as one.
Commentator: He's been missing in action ever since his defeat in Meteon's debut race. And to come back like this after such a long silence!
Commentator: Well, the proof of the pudding's in the eating, as they say! We'll find out how the mad Maddie machine fares in the race soon enough!
Commentator: And next on the starting line is someone who needs no introduction here at the PSC!
Spectator 2: Meeteoon!
Spectator 3: Don't let us down, Meteon!
Commentator: Well, after that reception from the crowd, what more is there to say? It's Blue Orbit, everyone, piloted by Meteon!
Meteon: ...
Spectator 2: Wahoo! Yeah!
Spectator 4: He's sooo awesome!
Commentator: The crowd won't stop cheering! Yes, the Cobalt Comet is as popular as ever!
Sierokarte: And Meteon will be going for his fifth consecutive victory here today, of course.
Commentator: Okay, ladies and gentlemen, if we could have quiet please. The race will be starting in a matter of moments now.
Commentator: Oh, but just before it does, one more quick announcement...
Commentator: Thanks to these bad boys flying around at various points around the track, you'll be able to get up close and personal with all the race action!
Sierokarte: Yes, they have really helped boost the popularity of skyracing, haven't they?
Commentator: Absolutely!
Commentator: Okay, so it's time at last! We're just waiting for the starting signal now...
Commentator: And they're off!
